Despite my name on this forum, I have recently concluded a long journey and removed virtually all of my once thick beard via electrolysis. Overall I’m quite happy with the results.
This said, there are a few areas on my face that have some slight pitting and irregularities. I am considering a light to regular dermabrasion treatment by a highly skilled plastic surgeon to help with these issues.
However, as I’ve Googled my hairless face off, I’ve come across a notion (albeit not widely mentioned) that electrolysis destroys sebaceous glands and sebaceous glands play a large role in healing… Thus, my skin may not heal well after an invasive treatment such as dermabrasion. I think at some point I even saw something about this posted on Hairtell, but I don’t think there were any clear answers…
I really want to go through with a dermabrasion as I’ve seen them have great results. Yet, I’m very scared that my skin won’t heal as well as it should and that I’ll be left with even worse skin/scars.
So, I’m curious what every one thinks of this? Your knowledge and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if anyone has had dermabrasion after extensive electrolysis, please let me know!!
